Great article!

I was once in a planning meeting, where a Junior developer proclaimed "We can't do that - we have to write tests first, and there's no test coverage at all in the application, so it's going to take too much time for us to safely make that change!"

It just so happened that one of the Directors was present in the meeting, and his immediate reply was "Don't be silly, children learn to walk by falling over. Lets not be afraid of mistakes."

Or as I recently said to the same Director: "risk is just an opportunity in disguise."
